The Terminalia of Funny-land


"This performative perambulation charted a path along the waterside of Auckland city, taking as a central reference point the former location of the Luna Park amusement park buildings. By witnessing the lay of the land along the way the walk sets about charting a ritual of ceremonial non-sense." - Artist Statement
